Playing ‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Sophie Turner Gets to 'Kick Some Ass' in ‘Barely Lethal’

Sophie Turner may be the sweet and innocent Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones -- but in her new movie Barely Lethal, she’s ruthless!

Turner told ETonline, “[On] Game of Thrones, I’m just the submissive crying one and I’ve been dying to kick some ass.”

Yes, please! Lady Sansa has gone through some tough times as of late (and pretty much the entire series), including a scene that many fans thought went one step too far.

“I just let loose all the built-up, pent-up anger and frustration that I’ve had,” Turner said of her character in Barely Lethal.

Turner stars opposite Hailee Steinfeld and Dove Cameron in the flick about a teen assassin (Steinfeld) in search of a stereotypical high school experience. Yes, a teen comedy with girls who kick butt.

Samuel L. Jackson also stars as the head of the special ops training school in search of hunting down the villainous Victoria Knox (Jessica Alba).

“Sam and Jessica were so awesome,” said Steinfeld. “Both really funny too, which I guess people expect -- but I didn’t.”

“I totally didn’t expect it,” said Turner, recalling how the girls were asked to “calm down” the day Jackson was coming on set -- due to their usual rowdiness on set. “They were just like, ‘Everybody be cool, OK?’ and then Sam came on and he was like, ‘Let’s do this!’”

Barely Lethal hits theaters on Friday.
